Importantly, Humanities & Social Sciences subjects can facilitate your route to university and give you a wealth of applicable knowledge and analytical savvy.
Charlie Avis studied A Levels in Geography, Maths and Physics, as well as a PE Diploma during his time at HSDC Havant (previously Havant College) back in 1985, and through these early career-defining decisions his options were opened up to a number of different universities and endless future options.
Now with his career well established, Charlie works as a UN Officer in the United Nations Environment Programme in Geneva, Switzerland.
Reflecting on his time at the former Havant College, Charlie said:
“Havant helped me get three solid A Level passes which basically then gave me my choice of any university.
“This paved the way for me to follow my passion for the environment and, luckily, I’ve been fortunate enough to work in that sector ever since.”
There are lots of people at the college, each studying a diverse range of courses, people from all different areas come to study here, it creates a sense of community, there is a huge social aspect to college life across all courses.Lee Backhouse, BTEC student
Everyone at the College was really helpful, and there’s lots of facilities, meaning it’s very easy to get your work done on time, and get good grades. The teaching and support was excellent, they were always on top of it, and made sure you got work done on time and you were challenged. Everyone is friendly and its really diverse, meaning you can get involved in lots of different things.Conor Ward, BTEC student
My experience at the college was enjoyable and productive, with thoroughly helpful people surrounding you, an excellent experience. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was, with the work shop time and experience I had, it was a great two years preparing me for the next stage.Edward Smith, BTEC student
